everything i see about this update has been really good as long as you are only using one monitor. but i do not know when the final drivers are coming out. these drivers were announced one month ago so I would guess the next update will happen sometime in the same time frame

Well the prototype of this driver was previewed a few months ago when the 7990 was released. Prior to that, it had been the subject of development since at least January 2013. Which indicates just how extreme of a problem frame metering actually is. I can guarantee it was a major priority for the driver development team.

I keep trying to find a list of DirectX 9 games to get a better perspective for the games that are still plagued by frame metering problems with the 13.8 driver. Everyone mentions Skyrim, which is really a big deal, but the list of DirectX 9 games has a lot of other current AAA titles on it as well.

i thought amd came out and said there is absolutely no support in these drivers for any of the dx9 games. they just have not figured it out yet or have not had the time to implement it yet
